I understand if you are a tad disappointed because he will bring “boring” football. I get that. I, and 3,000-yard passer Russell Wilson and NCAA career touchdown leader Montee Ball disagree, but we get it.
The bottom line is Bielema wins. A lot. And, he has done so at a program similar to Arkansas (recruiting disadvantages, but the advantage of statewide fanbase dominance).
He is proven. He is experienced (but relatively young). He is not a retread.
You may not think so, but this hire was a MAJOR shot over the bow, nationally.
Take a look around. No program in America has hired away a sitting NFL Head Coach and then, 5 years later, a sitting (3-consecutive) Rose Bowl head coach. Not one.
PS–He has also already proven he can recruit 4 or 5-star Florida talent.
